There are numerous ways to redirect a domain to another domain or subdomain and one of them is by creating a CNAME record. In case you own a domain and you have developed a website through some online service which supplies you with a service subdomain, you can easily link the two by creating a CNAME record for your-domain.com that directs to subdomain.provider.com. What you will achieve in this way is that www.your-domain.com will be in the web browser address bar while it opens the already mentioned site from the servers of the third-party provider. It is important to know that if you create a CNAME record, any other records your domain address may have will stop working, so you can't have both a CNAME record directing to one provider and working email addresses with another. The CNAME record is always an alpha string, not a number, and sometimes more configuration may be required with the other company.

CNAME Records in Hosting

If you have a hosting plan from our company and you want to create a CNAME record, it'll take you only a few mouse clicks to get it done. You can access the DNS records for all domain addresses and subdomains hosted in your account through the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with each and every plan and adding a new record is as simple as clicking on a button, choosing the type, that will be CNAME in this case, entering the actual record value and saving the change. In case you have never added this type of record before, you will discover a Help section with a detailed video tutorial you can watch, or you can simply contact us and we'll help you with this task. If you have created an Internet site using another company, you want to use a private URL for your webmail or you want to designate a subdomain to be used with the services of a different company, like Google Apps, all it takes is setting up a CNAME record with a couple of mouse clicks within your Control Panel.
